Hi, I bought the Utah automatic 4 months ago, have clocked up 4000 trouble free miles and very happy with it. As I do a lot of towing I was gutted when they upgraded it to 3.5 tonnes from 3.0, but thats not the dealers fault, they are trying to retrospectively get it re-plated to 3.5.
I had mine re-mapped and it frequntly turns in 38 mpg on a run up to Herefordshire with a combination of motorway and A and B roads. When I tow the digger or the tipping trailer it drops to 24, but thats still better than my mate gets with his L200 Browning with nothing on the back!
Only thing I dont like is the colour of the leather seats, I think Isuzu list it as "**** by moonlight" I too looked at the 3.2 Ranger, smartest looking pick up IMHO but I couldnt afford to run it! Dealer mate of mine reckons high teens is good going.................
One thing, I went for the 18" Black Alloys, and what a muppet I am, there is only 1 "off road" tyre that matches factory size, the General Grabber AT, if I'd bought the 17"'s there would be a plethora available!
